On September 6 at 4:29 EDT Venus turns direct. Its been a long summer without her and I am so ready to welcome her back(or actually welcome her forward)!
I don't know about you, but this particular Venus retrograde was definitely noticeable to say the least! Once every 18 months she slips into what appears to be a backward motion and I have absolutely been counting the days for the 6th of September.
You may have noticed a theme of unfinished business and an almost sorting of karmic issues during the Venus Retrograde. Old friends and lovers may have made a reappearance. Venus also rules both money and beauty so the retrograde was not the ideal time to invest, buy luxury items or make any major changes to our appearance.
The good news is that at last she is poised to turn direct very shortly. Our love outlooks should improve greatly...yesssss!!! The Venus~Mars alignment gives us a powerful desire for love and this is the ultimate aspect for romance, both new and improved. We will also experience almost ideal conditions for falling in love~ Swoon! ( insert fluttering, happy heart emoji)
This is a great time for reflection on what lessons we may have learned since June. What have we accomplished? How does that speak to how we give and receive love? How far have we in fact really travelled?
The Goddess of love has some important things for us to focus on... love, romance, the arts, beauty, money, sensuality and comfort. These are all things that she touches and in return she would love to see us experience everything she has to offer. We are wiser now. We all should ask ourselves what things we can do to make our important relationships stronger and how can we be a little more loving and kinder?

On Saturday we will have the annual Pisces Full Moon~ the first of three consecutive Super Moons. This moon is considered a Super Moon due to its proximity to earth. Super Moons are believed to be more potent than average, so this is a great time for all of us to utilize this extra dose of magical moon energy.
The focus of this particular full moon is a deep need or desire for closure on a soul level. It also has an almost Romeo and Juliet(or Gomez and Morticia if you prefer) vibe to it. Its romantic and compassionate. Sounds pretty and poetic right? It is. The Pisces moon is both dreamy and spiritual. The sign of Pisces is about endings and transition. This moon is bound to test our need to maintain control over our families, partners, money, careers, etc. The lesson here is to learn to let go of both the control and the limiting beliefs that come with that. Don't be surprised if this moon puts a spotlight on certain areas in your life where you may be stuck. That's her job. Allow the illumination from the Pisces moon to show you what you are in denial about and what you need to move away from.
This Full Moon has the ability to open the windows of your perception if you are willing to work with the energies. All full moons bring with them an awareness of what has been hidden. Its a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. What seeds did you plant back then? Have you noticed any development? Have you decided to release certain things that you once held so dear? This is an excellent time to let go of the things, people, and beliefs that no longer serve you. What have you outgrown? There is power in release... Don't fear letting go.
Working with this dreamy moon is simple...Pay attention to synchronistic events. Take special note of dreams and deja vu. There are messages here for you! Practice being more compassionate and understanding. When dealing with people, exercise less judgement. Write a love letter or a poem to your beloved~remember this is a very poetic moon! Make some Full Moon water, take an epson salt bath, write down everything on paper that you no longer need to hold onto and burn it.
Take a little time during this amazing moon phase to focus on what the Full Moon in Pisces is all about. Be loving. Be kind. Be vulnerable. Pay attention to your dreams! Write a love letter even if just to yourself. Let go of your need for control~ the key here is release and transformation. There should be no fear in letting go as there is so much power in closure. Wishing you an amazing Super Full Moon!

The New Moon in Leo occurs tomorrow at 10:53 am EDT.
I am so excited about this New Moon! Its absolutely Swoon~ worthy! Whats not to love...passion, fire, excitement, boldness? Stahhhp it...totally my kind of New Moon! If you're an undercover badass~ you will bask in the glow of this yummy energy. Leo is a passionate, fiery, bold and beautiful sign and those, dear-heart, are the aspects that this New Moon will highlight and encourage us to focus on.
Every New Moon is yet another possibility for each of us to plant the seeds of what we want to manifest and to concentrate on the things that we hope to draw into our lives. Moon energy is always powerful and at the New Moon in particular, we all have the opportunity to really focus, set our intentions and to make a heartfelt wish for whatever it is that we want from the Universe.
Leo energy is available to all of us to use in our New Moon manifestations. The spotlight will be on formulating some new goal/goals. We should reflect on our romantic lives, our creative endeavors and hobbies and also our relationships with children. Now is the time to be really clear with that we want and not to be afraid to ask for whatever that may be. Just own the things that you desire the most. Be clear with your boundaries. Leo is the sign of the lion. Powerful, regal and self assured. Yeah~ be all of that!
Some important keywords for this spicy, fiery sign are pride, generosity, hospitable, caring, warm active and very open. How can we incorporate some of these traits into our own personalities? This is an excellent opportunity to make some big changes that will benefit us beyond the current moon cycle. Set the stage now to reap the rewards in about 2 weeks at the full moon. Plant the seeds...act with passion...say how you really feel...channel your inner badass!
The Leo New Moon is a time for creation. Your creation. This phase is about personal power. This is definitely NOT the time to be a wallflower! Sashay boldly into the limelight. Walk the walk. Own it! Its all about celebrating your unique story. Step into leadership~ you are being called upon. Live passionately and make lots of wishes!

We are gearing up for the powerful New Moon in Taurus and our second retrograde of 2015. Both will take place tomorrow...so exciting! So here is the rundown on what we need to know about this beautiful cosmic event...
Some quick retrograde advice first~
Planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts and automobiles. A lot of times during the retrograde, we can experience issues with any or several of these areas. I have found that the easiest way to navigate this 3 week period is to remain flexible, allow for extra travel time, avoid signing contracts, and review all projects and plans. We often focus on the down side of the retrograde, but I happen to actually like this time and here's why~
The retrograde is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Often times something or someone from our past comes up for review. It's also the best time to slow down, organize, clear out, clean out and regroup. Our intuition is typically heightened now and coincidences can be extraordinary! There is magic in this brief period. I promise! :)
I am so looking forward to this New Moon in Taurus!
This Moon bodes well for farmers, gardeners and anyone planting new seeds for projects, love relationships or other ventures. It's an excellent time to reboot your physical practice. Get back on track with your exercise program, nutrition, sleep and hydration. Eat well! Walk barefoot in the grass. Honor your body and the amazing things it does for you!
Because this particular New Moon occurs the same day as the retrograde there can be a strong influence on relationships specifically those that are romantic and can be of a soulmate nature. This isn't a time to solve the big problems or to "figure things out." Don't fight the tides of change, whatever is happening in our lives, trust it~ its the process that we are meant to experience.
Loads of Bright Light and Big Love~

WOW... What a week!
Spring has sprung...We welcome the Equinox! Our New Moon is in Pisces and as if that wasn't enough excitement, we have also had a Solar Eclipse!
Pisces energy encourages us to dream and envision what we can contribute to create the world that we WISH to live in. Simple acts of kindness~including ourselves~ the focus should be as we heal, we help others to heal.
This is arguably the most powerful week of 2015 in astrological terms. This is a time of choosing new options and of releasing the old, the outdated and what no longer serves us. Think "breakthroughs and insights."
The eclipse portal is opening and will last the entire lunar cycle and the will be followed by a lunar eclipse on April 4. With 2 eclipses back to back, we have a very powerful cycle.
This particular eclipse happens to be in the last degree of Pisces, also known as the Omega degree. This degree brings to a close great cycles of time and changes to major life themes and patterns.
Use this time to set intentions~ to manifest. Focus on the things and the energy that you want to bring into your life. Spend time writing your goals and dreams. We have opportunity every lunar cycle for new resolutions. Make one of them acts of kindness~
Bright Light and Big Love!

10 of Swords
Key Words: Enlightenment, turning point, feeling back-stabbed, martyrdom, exaggerated self pity, feeling life is against you, playing the victim and cutting through the illusion.
OUCH! This particular 10 is an alarming card to draw in a layout, but it isn't quite as bad as it looks. There are many interpretations of the 10 of Swords, because it is one of the most powerful and complex cards in the deck. So lets take a deeper look to gain a better understanding of this seemingly sad... almost painful card.
One of the best and nicest things I can say right off the bat about this guy is that like all tens, this card indicates the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. It may not sound like much, but it is powerful and here's why:
Before you can embark on this new journey or new beginning, you must liberate yourself from old patterns of behavior that no longer serve you, drop all of your emotional baggage and say good- bye to the old you. This is the time to finally rid your life of all of that unnecessary clutter. Things feel bad right now...we have all been there, but if you look at the message in this card as one of enlightenment, you then put yourself in a position of running your own show. You can get to a place of regaining your authority on YOU. Grab a broom...sweep the crap out of all of your corners and put your stuff and the stuff that you have let others leave behind into a dustpan and discard... once and for all.
Sometimes we all have to accept our illusions for what they are. But even the act of being disillusioned can only lead to a new self awareness. This is the time to look forward and to finally put the past behind you. It is often at the point of descending into the depths that you must realize that the only way out... is up.
The final message of the 10 of Swords is simple: It sucks right now, but you are almost through it. Tens signify completion and the cycle end...this card does in fact indicate a turn for the better. Hang in there!
Big Love and Bright Light!

The Full Moon in Aries will occur tonight at 11:19 PM EST.
So what exactly does this mean for us and what can we expect?
Without getting too astrologically scientific, this Full Moon does have significance for all of us.
Traditionally, the Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. Its an emotional time...a time of romance, fertilization and relationships. There is polarity with this Full Moon which urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of others.
The Aries Full Moon is self assertive, leading and personally courageous. It values authenticity over tact and is energized by independent efforts. Tonight's Full Moon is all about emotional declarations. Something of a personal nature may be building inside of us and now is the time that the energy of the universe demands that we let it out! We will feel what this "something" is during the next 2 weeks.
You may find creative bursts seemingly coming out of nowhere. Go with it! This is an amazing time to be creatively inspired. We might also see people coming back from our past for further review. We will all experience realizations of what is working and not working for us. Our priorities may seem to shift as we are preparing for the turn of the year.
The time is now to express ourselves and to let things out of our system. Get rid of the things that do not serve you anymore. Surrender to the sweet release and accept the new positive energy to come your way and fill you up to the tippy~top.
Many Full Moon Blessings!
Big Love and Bright Moon Light!
